Lindemans Framboise Lambic


Lambics are a rare breed. They are spontaneously fermented beers, instead of using ale or lager yeasts, so the results are not always consistent, which is why most breweries don’t make them. Lindemans have been brewing commercially since 1811, and are probably the most well known of all lambics. Most lambics are brewed with fruit, as is traditional in Belgium for preservation because they didn’t have hops. These beers are brewed in a similar method to Champagne, méthode champenoise, and are then aged in oak barrels.

Raspberry Lambic. 4.0% ABV. Belgium

Ruby red color, looks like raspberry juice with a fluffy pink head.

So, it smells like raspberries. And maybe a little yeastiness but thats about it.

It has high acid with good carbonation, it’s a pretty refreshing mouth feel.

It tastes like raspberries, what a surprise. Sweet, but not over the top sugar water. It’s all about the “delicious factor.” It doesnt taste like beer, it tastes more like mikes hard lemonade. It has a little tartness, and I’m getting some strawberries in there as well.

What can I say, its delicious. Based on the taste, I struggle to call it a beer. Its more like carbonated raspberry juice. Its really just dessert for me. 85 points.
